Kakunodate, and it’s historic Samurai District

Kakunodate is a small town in Northern Honshu.  It’s painfully charming.  By far the most beautiful version of “old Japan” that I’ve see thus far.  The old samurai district is 380 years old; though, even the rest of the town is meticulous. It must be spectacular during cherry blossom season as most all those streets will be bursting with color (and tourists).
